Factual error: When Arnold's is seen from the inside, metal pinball machines are seen. Since this show is set in the 50's, the pinball machines should be wooden. Metal pinball machines didn't show up until the 70's.

Good News, Bad News - S11-E21

Factual error: Joanie, looking at an issue of Billboard magazine, says, "Chachi's record has only been out two weeks and it's already #178 on the chart." Since 1959, Billboard has had a weekly "Bubbling Under" chart in addition to the Hot 100. In the 1960s, when this episode takes place, the Bubbling Under chart listed no more than 35 songs (#101 to #135). There is no way Chachi's record could be #178.

Trivia

Richie and Joanie had an older brother named Chuck, who was played by two different actors, and who only appeared during the first season of the show, because the character of Chuck was written off the show. This plot plot has since absorbed into popular culture: known as "Chuck Cunningham Syndrome," it refers to a character's (either leading or supporting) unexplained disappearance from a series.
